As an Artist I work hard to develop paintings that speak volumes, my love of Maine, and all it has to offer. I was BORN ON EARTH DAY and have lived in Maine most of my life.
My interest in art sprouted from early childhood. I am fascinated with the beauty in nature, landscapes and seascapes surrounding Coastal Maine. I started painting abstract in high school, creating mood through bold colors and shapes. My focus over the past 10 years has been watercolor which allowed me to use a more realistic style using softer lines and vibrant colors.
Since 2007, I have been teaching Watercolor and Alcohol Ink courses through JoAnn Fabrics,Hobby Lobby, Adult Educations Community Centers, Corporate Team Building Events, as well as private one on one classes.
Since 2014 I have been the Portland Maine International Jetport Artist. If you fly into the PWM Jetport look for me! You will find my work there at the Down East Market Place, or you may see me there signing my art.
